In 2013 the volume of transmitted energy totaled 66 069 mln. kW/h (-2 233 mln. kW/h or 3% on 2012). Revenues from energy transmission increased by RUR 5 566 mln. (11%) due to increased boiler tariffs on energy transmission and transition of providers of last resort to payments for transmission services based on the tariff (flat or two-part tariff) chosen by a consumer according to the contract since 01.01.2013. The main reasons for decrease of productive supply in 2013 are:

  • reduced consumption by large industrial consumers (Chusovskoy Metallurgic Plant, Uralkali, SUAL BAZ, Mechel, ChTPZ),
  • transition of several consumers (Uralasbest, Magnesit) to FSK UES since 01.01.2013,
  • change of a boiler tariff scheme in the Chelyabinsk region since 01.09.2013 that led to the change of payment procedure and decrease of productive supply to end users.

Uralasbest and SUAL BAZ transmission volumes (247 mln. kW/h and 467 mln. kW/h) were excluded from Sverdlovenergo transmission volume. Magnezit transmission volume (123 mln. kW/h) was excluded from Chelyabenergo transmission volume. Losses in Chelyabenergo in 2013 declined due to a considerable drop of productive supply (reduced consumption of large industrial enterprises). Actual loss figures in 2013 totaled 5 686 mln. kW/h or 7.62%. In comparison to 2012 a 2.5% productive supply decrease lowered energy losses to 299 mln. kW/h (0.4% of productive supply).

As a priority the Company unleashed an action plan focused on the optimization (reduction) of losses and these measures have saved the Company 217.5 mln. kW/h and RUR 341.219 mln. Administrative procedures have saved us 86.6 mln. kW/h and RUR 133.262 mln.). The savings from technical measures and metering upgrade totaled 2.6 mln. kW/h (RUR 3.933 mln.) and 128.167 mln. kW/h (RUR 204.024 mln.) correspondingly. During 2013 we have spent RUR 317 983 thous. to upgrade over 33.5 thous. metering devices (target figures – 30.1 thous. metering devices, expenses – RUR 329 030 thous., excl. VAT). We have also arranged remote data collection from over 24.105 thous. metering devices (target figures – 21.054 thous.). The completion of our loss decrease plan was 105.05%.

Energy-saving and efficiency increase measures during 2013 were arranged according to a range of federal and regional regulatory documents: Federal Law #261-FZ dd. 23.11.2009, Government Decree #340 dd. 15.05.2010, Government Decree #977 dd. 01.12.2009, decrees of regional executive bodies responsible for tariff regulation, Energy-saving and Efficiency Increase Program of IDGC of Urals for 2013 – 2018.

Numerical values of target indicators from Energy-saving and Efficiency Increase Program are set for 2013-2018. Target and actual figures for 2013 are disclosed in the table below.

The program consists of target and accompanying subprograms including measures on loss decrease during energy transmission and distribution and measures on resource consumption decrease by operating facilities and for economic needs. Target subprograms are focused on the decrease of resource and water consumption by at least 15% in comparison to annual consumption, pay-off equaling 80% for 5 years (measures for economic needs) and for 10 years (measures lowering losses from energy transmission and distribution). Accompanying subprograms are subprograms with high efficiency that cannot be referred to as target ones due to several criteria. Such measures as disconnection of a transformer under a low load on substations with 2 and more transformers, disconnection of transformers on a substation with seasonal load, phase load balancing in 0.38 kV networks are taken on an annual basis and are considered supporting. In 2013 the target effect under the program was 188.05 mln. kW/h in physical terms and RUR 389.94 mln. in money terms. The effect from target subprograms totaled 71.83 mln. kW/h and RUR 142.0 mln., the effect from accompanying subprograms reached 116.22 mln. kW/h and RUR 247.94 mln.

As of 2013 the effect from the program totaled 218.11 mln kW/h in physical terms and RUR 469.82 mln in money terms. The effect from accompanying measures totaled 131.23 mln. kW/h and RUR 281.19 mln. The effect from measures supporting existing loss level totaled 36.16 mln kW/h and RUR 75.05 mln. Expenses on the program totaled RUR 1 010.33 mln. Financing resources of the energy-saving program were investment program (RUR 924.45 mln.), repair program (RUR 82.95 mln.) and consumer facilities (RUR 2.93 mln.). The overall effect from target loss decreasing measures totaled 86.55 mln. kW/h and RUR 187.5 mln. As of 2013 the overall effect from target measures focusing on the decrease of resource consumption for economic needs totaled 135 tfoe and RUR 1.13 mln. (target figures - 269 tfoe and RUR 2.07 mln.).
